So damn refreshing

California, US independent soul artist and saxophonist, Ava Lemert's latest single.

This one's for anyone who's keeping the weekend going this weekend all the way through Monday. Yes it's Sunday, but that's no excuse to get grumpy or start dreading all the mountains of work that have pilled up while you were away.

Keep your feet up, keep relaxing and unwinding, and keep the good times rolling. It's going to be a wonderful week for you. Here's an amazing track that will get you off to a positive start. Remember to make it count from the get go, and be the best you can be all week (not just when people are watching).

Durt Boi
"TRIPPIN"
Hip Hop


Checkmate!

So lush

On election day, November 6, Durt Boi made his final move in a what could have only been described as a hostile takeover of the South. The US ex-army service man has been on a war path to eliminate any competition standing in the way of the (his) hip hop crown since the beginning of the year and the results have left many a mind boggled. After years of artistic development, Durt Boi's sound has gone from exceptional to just plain out-of-this-world.

"Trippin", while probably not his last in his series of back-to-back hits this year, certainly feels like the climax of an era and the beginning of a whole new phase in the independent Tennessee rap star's illustrious career.

Production-wise the track is lush and crisp with a virtuosic beat that will keep your head ringing. The overall track has a deeply infectious vibe that makes is a top contender for the clubs. It's effortlessly masterful, lyrically sound, not overly pompous as is the case with many rap songs nowadays, authentic, and most of all, you won't feel dirty afterwards like you would after listening to a nice Drake or Kanye West record.

The song has already turned a lot of ears in the industry, critics are going nuts, DJs are super excited and fans are raving, to say the least.

A highly intoxicating track that will have you reaching for the ash tray.

Allwinsnoloss is an exceptionally talented rap artist with a highly sought after hip hop sound like no other.

"Blazed Up" is the first track on the Maryland, US independent hip hop star's latest album, "For Smokers Only" which boasts 10 lyrically masterful, innovative, crystal clear sonic masterpieces that will remind you why you fell in love with hip hop and why you should keep listening.

It's an anthemic feel-good track with laid-back lyrics and a generally liberal feel all the way through. It's perfect for relaxing urban music playlists but it's also proving to be a great club record as well.

Crissi Cochrane
"Little Sway"
Soul


Will lasso the moon for you

Forget about whispering sweet nothings, throw on this album and you are guaranteed to set the mood right for nothing but good loving.

Whether you like to waltz around a spacious room with your special someone, you like nothing more than to put your feet up and hold hands side by side, or you prefer to be lip-locked all night long, or whatever secret pleasures you like to indulge in behind closed doors or in the open, it's got 10 gorgeously written and performed tracks that will serenade you and take you to the moon and back if you can't bring it to you.

It's elegant, it's got that old school cool, it's warm and inviting, jazzy and packed with soul. The album saw to it that Crissi became a multiplatinum indie artist within a year of its release and it features the critically acclaimed singles "Sleep in the Wild" and "Pretty Words" which played a big part in making it happen.

This month, "Little Sway" is being officially re-released in Italy owing to popular demand and other regions of the world may follow suit and give Crissi her well deserved place on the international stage before long, but for now she remains Canada's top independent soul music artist and one of the top indie artists in the world.

Debbie Goodman
"Sugar Monster"
Pop/Children's Music


A sigh of relief.

A musical journey back in time to the days of childhood innocence.

Something to help you remember the simple pleasures of life.


With so much drama in the world today it's so refreshing to know there are artists out there who are still taking time out to cater to the needs of the inner children in all of us.

With a kiddies theme all the way through, you can be sure you won't be hearing much about adult problems or anything that will get any stressful thoughts and worries creeping in throughout what can only be described as an utterly refreshing and revitalising listening experience.

This deceptively low key album has got 10 stress free tracks that together make valium look like a tic tac. It's a sure way to get a load off your mind, not to mention, it's great for kids as well.

"Buffalos"
Alternative Rock


Spellbinding

If you are into enchanting songs, good stories and peaceful melodies, then strap yourself in for a slow, utterly soothing, satisfying and relaxing roller coaster ride into a dreamy, unknown land far far away.

Sitting comfortably at number 28 on critically acclaimed independent Italian alternative rock band, Amycanbe's massive 34 track Skunk Radio Live album, "Buffalos" is still one of the band's fans favorites to date several years after it was first released as part of one of their very first albums, "Mountain Whales" back in 2011.

You'll be fully pleasured, sedated, and hooked right from the very first ever so gripping piano note till the very last ever so gently stroked key.

Tate
"Worth It"
R&B


Slow and sensual, no strings attached.

One of those tracks that'll remind you why you fell in love with R&B. If your baby making playlist has been lacking that really innocent, lush sound that makes you want to get oiled up then you are in for a treat.

"Worth It", California, US R&B artist, Tate's latest single was released only a few days ago but it's already got fans raving far and wide not just in the US, but in the UK and beyond as well. It comes only a couple of weeks after and follows in the footsteps of "Fresh", its predecessor which still has top US DJs and critics going bonkers. Tate's sound is a simple yet hard to come by sound. It's raw, passionate, warm, very inviting, and often with a raunchy or adult theme, but it's also got a really innocent, youthful and gentle feel that makes it almost feel wrong, and hence it's even more compelling to listen to. Don't worry, she's not underage.

"Worth It" is a track about friends with benefits and no strings fun. It's got a really dark, sensual backdrop that sets a really passionate mood. You'll feel like a virgin again, but not for long hopefully.

DedFre$H (a.k.a Elohim Fre$hy)
"Up Early"
Hip Hop


Supercharge your alarm radio with this.

Find your inner superman, early in the morning.

If you hate getting up in the morning... well, you've probably got some serious issues and we won't be able to help you there. Try listening to some Skunk Radio Live for an hour or two and see if the lack of mindless pop eases your mind and sedates you but if it doesn't work please see a real doctor. We'd invite you to join our club but it's a secret club and we're full. If on the other hand, your problem is that you hate getting up early, then this song should change all that.

Stick this in your alarm clock and you'll be flying into the office or school on cloud nine everyday ready for whatever the world throws at you without a care in the world.

Sitting comfortably at track number 5 on Elohim Fre$hy's latest album, "Return of the Gods", it's one of those hip hop tracks that will make you want to re-evaluate the state of hip hop today and point the finger at your sources rather than condeming the genre as a whole. Maybe you've been looking in all the wrong places for good hip hop, or good music in general - you won't find it on MTV or BET, but don't worry, you're in the right place now.

"Up Early" is not just a great record, it's a compelling record with a soothing, repetitive feel that is so intoxicating and exciting that it makes you want to listen to it over and over without ever stopping. It's one of those records that'll drive a DJ totally insane, in a good way.

Production-wise, it has a very light, airy feel, almost like the inside of a big tin can. It's super bright with rattling hats that'll get your blood rushing with excitement. Lyrically, it goes without being said that DedFre$h, who is now better known as Elohim Fre$hy came more forcefully than a teenager on Horny Goat Weed. It's been a while since he released a full length project and he did well to make "Return of the Gods" count. "Up Early" stood out for many critics and fans as one of the top tracks on the record but the whole album is packed with surprises.

"Truth Be Told"
Alternative Rock


The way you feel when the truth sets you free.

If you've never told the truth, or for some reason you hate doing it, here's a song that'll give you a taste of what it feels like.

Regardless of what your mood is when you hit the play button, this track will instantaneously whisk you away to a place where your troubles will never find you - a happy, mysterious, serene place where only inner peace reigns.

If you've got a playlist for serious hair pulling moments, this should be track number one on that playlist. It's simple, spacious and easy on the ear, and will sooth your mind and caress your soul while leaving you ample space to breathe deeply and flap your wings freely as you float away into outer space.

Exciting, refreshing and uplifing.

If really infectious, meaningful feel-good pop is what you are into then you'll hardly ever need to look any further than indie pop band, Ian and the Dreams' well-sized discography, which is packed with exactly that. They've been Milwaukee, USA's top indie pop band since they made their debut and it doesn't look like that's about to change anytime soon.

"Breathe" is one of those songs you can just throw on at any time of the day or night, put your feet up, and well, just breathe. It's exciting and it'll have you humming along and playing your air guitar to in no time.

"Cauchemars"
Instrumental/Experimental


A Nightmare You'll Cherish Forever.

Virtuoso redefined.

Epic!

A truly monumental album. 

Will make you throw away all your top new mainstream pop albums.

All the amazing sounds you never knew your music collection was missing.

"Cauchemars" is a concept album centered around a character's evolution through the course of a nightmare. This is one of those albums you'll shut the whole world out to enjoy like a monkey does a well deserved banana at lunch time.

Yes, it's that good.

In fact it's so good that it would seem as though its creator, Belgian experimental artist, Seiswork was reluctant to share it with the world since it was created back in 2011/2012 after 3 years of hard labor and yet many of even the most devout music fans are yet to hear it. The 6 track album was only released on Soundcloud for public listening a few days ago and it is doing amazing things for today's starving music fans who seem to have long forgotten the depths real creativity can take the mind to.

If you are one of those music fans that likes to treat yourself to some good sounds when you've been amazing then this will really make your day.

If you are a starving music fan desperate for a good eargasm then prepare to have your socks blown off.

If you are just a humble mainstream pop music fan looking for something new and exciting to listen to then keep away from this album, it will raise your bar for good music so high you'll never be impressed by your favorite pop artists' best works ever again.

Sitting comfortably just before the climax of Mississippi, US underground rap star, Drevo Coolidge's Summer, 2018 mixtape, "Viral" is another one of those tracks that shows Drevo's versatility and explores his musicial abilities from yet another angle - this one's a little raunchy - okay a lot - alright it's downright filthy and may even leave a nasty (or fishy) smell and taste in your mouth, but you'll love it nevertheless.

Very explicit from start to finish, and NOT safe for work at all, but apart from that it's a pretty solid track. The song is free along with the whole mixtape, "Music Therapy". Download it on Spinrilla.

"Trappin Ain't a Hobby"
Hip Hop


So good.

A truly exceptional mixtape.

This mixtape is so refreshing we had to bring it back one more time, and we'll probably do it again in the near future.

Mainstream hip hop makes it so difficult to enjoy rap music sometimes, with all the infusions, crossovers, gimmicks and publicity stunts for mass appeal. When an artist like Yung Rackz drops a new song, album or mixtape there is no doubt what to expect - authentic, original hip hop sounds and lyrics that'll take you away.

If you are not yet familiar with North Carolina's underground rap sensation, Rackz then you better get familiar. This mixtape is packed with 18 solid tracks and every single one of them will remind you why you started listening to hip hop and still continue to do so even as the genre struggles with what can only be described as an identity crisis.

As the name suggests, "Trappin Ain't a Hobby" will take you through the darkest parts of inner city and paint a picture that reflects what life is like there.

Rackz tells stories masterfully delivered with flows that'll make your head spin. If real hip hop is what you need then this free mixtape will fulfil your every desire every single time. It will get you motivated and keep you uplifted throughout. Just hit the play button and let it blow you away.

"Drive Me Crazy"

Soul food redefined.

A musical journey back in time to one of California, US soul artist, Ava Lemert's earlier releases, "Twelve".

"Twelve" is the critically acclaimed 12 song album that put Ava Lemert's name on the map as a force to be reckoned with in soul music. Many years after its release, it is still being celebrated for its originality. One of the top tracks on the album, "Drive Me Crazy" is one of those infectious songs that are hard to forget and will have you humming it all day and night uncontrollably.

"Pull Up"
R&B


Slow, sweet and sensual, no strings attached.

Marco Richh has cemented his names in the minds of R&B music lovers of all ages as the go-to guy for passionate, really slow baby making music today. If you are looking for authentic R&B music you'll find that there are very few new artists to turn to nowadays, but with Marco Richh on your radar, your baby-making playlist is only ever a few clicks away from its much needed fix. Reminiscent of artists like and musical acts like Keith Sweat, Boyz II Men and Joe, Marco's highly sought after sound is as rare as they come in today's music industry. "Pull Up", his latest single was released on the 5th of September.

"Cougar"
Hip Hop


Cougar lovers only.

Another notable low key hip hop release by Yung Turnt of Georgia underground hip hop supergroup, Boss Man Status. If you know anything about these guys then you are probably already anticipating an excruciatingly satisfying rush that will fire up your hip hop engines and have you howling at the moon like you just hit the lottery, and you won't be wrong. The track slipped under the radar of many die-hard Boss Man Status fans when it was released back in 2016/2017, and despite limited distribution and little promotion it still managed to garner a lot of support online and is still getting a lot of play till today.

"Heart Attack"

Delicious.

A truly exceptional performance.
 
Fun and soulful.


A bigger, even more polished sound when fans thought it couldn't get any better. Crystal Starr never ceases to amaze and outdo herself with every new record, and this is just one of several critically acclaimed tracks that showcases her talent and musical style both vocally and lyrically in all their glories ever so spectacularly.

"Heart Attack" was featured on Crystal's latest album, "#She", which was released back in April.

It ranked as one of the top tracks amongst several other chart worthy singles including the title track "She", "Get Loose With It", and "Payback", one of the earlier releases that put her name on the map as one of California's top new R&B singers to watch.

Trevor Ohlsen
"All Over Again"
Pop


A mellow, soothing, mildly pensive and introspective track that seems more familiar with every passing moment.

Trevor takes fans back to his roots singer songwriter style in his latest single and reminds fans how they fell in love with his hair. Another one of those exciting and deeply comforting tracks you can just play and put your feet up whether it's a bright sunny afternoon or a cool Autumn night.
